Ryan says rape is a method of conception?

Back in August – an eternity ago in political world – Republican Tea Party (GOTP) vice presidential wannabe Paul Ryan gave an interview to WJHL-TV in Johnson City, TN, where he defended his position there should be no excuses for abortion, actually referring to rape as a “method of conception.”

EXCUSE ME?! RAPE IS NOW A “METHOD OF CONCEPTION”?! ARE YOU OUT OF YOUR BLOODY MIND!? While rape may resort in conception – unless you’re Todd Akin – it’s nowhere remotely close to love-making, you know love-making, as in the legitimate way of conceiving a child where two consenting adults copulate, or “make love”?

As the father of two daughters, and a father-in-law, I can’t conceive of the world these conservative troglodytes live in; RAPE is RAPE! This isn’t rocket science! Akin, Mourdock and Ryan are idiots, morons and imbeciles, and have no business being involved in politics and in making decisions regarding women’s bodies. How is it possible any educated woman, no cross that, any woman could vote for these guys? Welcome to the brave new world of today’s Republican Tea Party!

Ryan claims he never voted for defense cuts?

According to the Huffington Post, CBS News’ Norah O’Donnell questioned Republican Tea Party (GOTP) vice-presidential wannabe Paul Ryan this past weekend about voting for the very defense cuts he now criticizes President Obama for supporting.

But what brought this line of questioning to the fore front of the 2012 campaign? Blame it on GOTP presidential aspirant Mitt Romney’s “Meet the Press” appearance, where he thrust the cuts squarely into the limelight declaring Republicans had made a “mistake” when they agreed to $500 billion cut in defense spending over the next ten years.

“He’s talking about you because you voted for those cuts, correct?” O’Donnell pressed Ryan.

Ryan defensively tired to claim he’d voted for the cuts because he was trying to find “common ground” with the Democrats in reducing the budget deficit.

But O’Donnell didn’t appear to buy what Ryan was selling pointing out to the Congressman the defense cuts were part of the Budget Control Act Ryan had full throated supported declaring the legislation not only a “victory” but a “positive step forward”.

“So, you voted for defense cuts, and now you’re criticizing the president for those same defense cuts that you voted for and called a victory,” she said.

“The goal was never that these defense cuts actually occur,” Ryan mewed, claiming weakly he supported a sequestration measure, which would have triggered automatic cuts if the so-called supercommittee didn’t reach a deal.

O’Donnell kept up the heat and pressed on saying the act also contained $1 trillion in immediate cuts, including the defense cuts.

“And you also voted for those, and now you’re saying you didn’t vote for them?” she asked.

Ryan whined the Obama administration proposed $478 billion in defense cuts, in addition to cutting about $500 billion in defense from the sequestration.

“Right. A trillion dollars in defense spending, and you voted for it!” O’Donnell shot back.

“No, Norah. I voted for the Budget Control Act.”

No Congressman, you voted for defense cuts. Call it what you will, whine about however you wish, but the truth is you voted for $1 trillion dollars in defense cuts all the time blaming the President for them. Someone needs to review his notes from 9th grade civics class; the House of Representatives Congressman Ryan spends the money, not the President.

Romney scores zip with Black Voters?

It’s no surprise President Barack Obama’s beating Republican Tea Party (GOTP) presidential wannabe Willard Mitt Romney among African American voters, but what’s really surprising is how badly.

A NBC/Wall Street Journal poll has reported it’s by a staggering 94 percent to 0 percent; that’s worse than John McCain, that’s worse than any GOTP candidate ever, and that’s really saying something. Romney scored zero percent among Black voters – zero, nobody, nothing…

But wait that’s not all, the President’s also beating Willard among Latinos, voters under 35 and women.

According to a Hart Research Survey poll conducted in Virginia, Florida, Ohio, Iowa, Colorado and Nevada, women prefer President Obama to Romney 53% to 39%.
On top of that, 81% of the women said they were less likely to vote for Romney since he’s chosen Paul Ryan as a running mate, or that the choice made no difference to them at all.

The NBC/Wall Street Journal poll also shows the President has a commanding lead among Latino voters 63% to 28% over Romney.

So, can Willard Mitt Romney win the White House with no support among Black voters, 28% support among Latinos and 39% among women? Not likely, and the reinvention convention isn’t likely to give much of any bump to a campaign clearly lacking in likability.

Texas Judge says if the President is reelected it could mean civil war?

Sometimes you just have to shake your head in wonder, and this is definitely one of those times; it seems Republican Tea Party (GOTP) county judge, Tom Head, from Lubbock, Texas, is pushing a new justification for a tax increase in his county.

Head told the local Fox News affiliate, FOX34, Lubbock’s law enforcement needs extra tax dollars in order to be prepared for a full-scale uprising, which he’s predicted could be caused if President Obama’s reelected.

“Judge” Head’s claiming the President’s seeking to sign a variety of United Nations treaties effectively setting aside the Constitutional law of the United States.

“He’s going to try to hand over the sovereignty of the United States to the U.N., and what is going to happen when that happens?” Head asked. “I’m thinking the worst. Civil unrest, civil disobedience, civil war maybe. And we’re not just talking a few riots here and demonstrations, we’re talking Lexington, Concord, take up arms and get rid of the guy.”

“Human sacrifice! Dogs and cats, living together! Mass hysteria!”

But wait, Head’s not done.

“Now what’s going to happen if we do that, if the public decides to do that? He’s going to send in U.N. troops. I don’t want ’em in Lubbock County. OK. So I’m going to stand in front of their armored personnel carrier and say, ‘You’re not coming in here,'” the judge said. “And the sheriff, I’ve already asked him, I said, ‘You gonna back me?’ He said, ‘Yeah, I’ll back you.’ Well, I don’t want a bunch of rookies back there. I want trained, equipped, seasoned veteran officers to back me.”

So, why is Head going down this rabbit hole? Because it’s what conservative voters like to hear; it’s what all the fashionable candidates are saying today.

“Turning to the United Nations to tell us how to raise our kids, or whether we can have the Second Amendment rights that our Constitution gave us, I mean, that is the wrong way to go, right? Do not cede sovereignty,” said GOTP presidential wannabe Willard Mitt Romney. “I’m happy to talk there. I’m not willing to give American sovereignty in any way, shape or form to the United Nations or any other body. We are a free nation. We fought for freedom and independence. We are going to keep freedom and independence.”

Welcome to the new political world of the GOTP.

The President tells Willard, ‘You Can’t Just Make Stuff Up’

According to news reports, President Obama surprised the White House Press Corps to respond to Republican Tea Party (GOTP) Presidential wannabe Willard Mitt Romney’s newest claim the President’s “gutted” work requirements for welfare recipients; the President said Willard’s charge was “absolutely wrong.”

The President said this wasn’t the first time Romney had endorsed attack ads that had been rated false by a plethora of newspapers and fact-checkers.

“Now, Romney’s creating as a centerpiece of his campaign this notion that we’re taking the work requirement out of welfare, which every single person here who’s looked at it says is patently false,” the President said. “What he’s arguing is somehow we have changed the welfare requirement, the work requirement in our welfare laws. And, in fact, what’s happened was that my administration, responding to the requests of five governors, including two Republican governors, agreed to approve giving them, those states, some flexibility in how they manage their welfare rolls as long as it produced 20 percent increases in the number of people who are getting work.”

According to the Huffington Post, the five states, including Nevada and Utah were “interested in greater flexibility in the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families program, better known as welfare,” but the Obama administration hasn’t announced any of the requested waivers have gone out.

“Everybody who’s looked at this says what Gov. Romney’s saying is absolutely wrong,” the President continued. “Not only are his super PACs running millions of dollars worth of ads making this claim, Gov. Romney himself is approving this and saying it on the stump. So the contrast, I think, is pretty stark. They can run the campaign that they want, but the truth of the matter is you can’t just make stuff up.”

Unless of course you’re Willard Mitt Romney, Mr. President, and then it’s just the way you do business, if you can’t beat them on the legitimate issues, then just make up some issues that you can, that’s Willard’s motto.

Romney claims Vice President’s remarks a “new low”?

Republican Tea Party (GOTP) presidential wannabe Willard Mitt Romney’s accusing President Barack Obama’s campaign of reaching a new low, according to press accounts, following Vice President Joe Biden’s remarks to supporters saying GOTP presidential candidates and GOTP lawmakers would put them “back in chains.”

It’s clear the Vice President was talking about the risks of letting Wall Street operate without strong oversight when he was addressing a rally crowd in Danville, Va.

He said Romney wants to get rid of new Wall Street regulations Obama signed into law after the financial collapse of 2008, “Unchain Wall Street. They’re going to put y’all back in chains.”

Willard’s spokeswoman, Andrea Saul, mewed that the Vice President’s comments are, quote, “not acceptable in our political discourse” and a, quote, “new low.”

At a later campaign stop in Wytheville, Va., Vice President Biden clarified his remarks, noting his “chains” comment was a nod to an earlier comment made by Paul Ryan that “a renewed commitment to limited government will unshackle our economy.”

It was a nice try by the Romney Campaign to try to turn the Vice President’s comment into something it wasn’t, but in the fashion we’ve all come to recognize, they mishandled this one too. If your new running mate has been talking about “unshackling the banks and Wall Street” for the better part of a year or more, you better know that before you stick your neck out and criticize the comments made by your opponents; it’s just one more case of not being ready for the big time.

McCain says Romney tax returns show he paid Uncle Sam

According to numerous news sources Republican Tea Party (GOTP) 2008 presidential runner up John McCain, whose team reviewed years of GOTP 2012 presidential wannabe Willard Mitt Romney’s tax history as part of a so-called vice presidential vetting process, is claiming there’s nothing in Willard’s returns to suggest he ducked years of tax obligations.

“I am absolutely confident that [Romney] … did pay taxes.” McCain told the Las Vegas Sun. “Nothing in his tax returns showed that he did not pay taxes.”

Of course, we’ll have to take his word for it since neither Romney nor McCain can offer any proof debunking claims Willard’s allegedly neglected to pay taxes for almost a decade, a claim made by Democratic Senate Majority Leader (and fellow Latter-day Saint) Harry Reid. Reid told The Huffington Post a source — a former Bain investor — had told him Romney “didn’t pay any taxes for 10 years.”

Romney, along with conservative talking heads (Limbaugh, Hannity, Huckabee et al.) have been furiously denying the claims, but thus far the proof has been lacking; the proof of course lies in Romney’s tax records and he’s refusing to release those, insisting American voters will just have to trust him when he says he paid “a lot of taxes”.

For Willard the tax question just continues to grow, earlier this week – in a grand show of the hypocrisy for which he is now famous – it was learned he’d required all those being “vetted” as his possible running mates to release several tax returns to his campaign, this of course while he continues to refuse to release any of his. Romney’s going to release his tax records – sooner or later – and it’s going to hurt him, but the continued hiding of what may or may not be there continues to make him look shady.

McCain says Ryan as #2 on ticket was ‘A Bold Choice’ just like Palin?

Republican Tea Party (GOTP) 2008 presidential bride’s maid, Senator John McCain has decided to weigh in on GOTP 2012 presidential wannabe Willard Mitt Romney’s choice of Tea Party (TP) darling Paul Ryan as his running mate saying in a “Fox News Sunday” interview that it was an “excellent choice”. Of course this is the man who foisted Sarah Palin on American as his running mate.

McCain said vice presidential picks can provide a boost in battleground states, something that didn’t seem to occur to him in 2008 and something that doesn’t seem to be behind Willard’s choice either, and McCain has spent, and continues to spend, a great deal of time trying to justify his questionable choice of Palin.

“First of all, the selection is made as to who will best help you get nominated and who you believe is best suited for the role of vice president of the United States,” McCain said. “At that time — I’m still proud of my running mate. I’m proud of Sarah and her family and I’m proud of the work that we did.”

I’m certain Willard’s overjoyed to have McCain’s approval, being an expert of who and what makes a good running mate choice and all.

Obama releases $70 million for Israel before Romney trip

President Barack Obama seems to have trumped Republican Tea Party (GOTP) presidential wannabe Willard Mitt Romney by announcing he’s releasing an additional $70 million in military aid for Israel the day before Willard traveled to Israel on the second leg of his so-called international trip.

But it can’t possibly be a big deal for Romney since he’s already said he’d do the opposite of everything the President’s done for Israel. So, logically one can assume Willard wouldn’t have given any additional monies.

The stepped-up U.S. aid, first announced in May, will go to help Israel expand production of a short-range rocket defense system known as “Iron Dome”, which has proved successful at stopping rocket attacks fired at Israeli civilians from close range, including from Gaza. The President announced the new military assistance as he signed a bill in the Oval Office expanding military and civilian cooperation with Israel.

The President said the bill underscores the United States’ “unshakable commitment to Israel.”
